pumpkin pie fragrance oil and canned pumpkin make this soap a natural for fall.


20.5 oz Coconut Oil
22.4 oz. Olive Oil
18 oz. Palm Oil
4 oz. Shea Butter
9.5 oz. Lye
16 oz. water
8 oz. canned pumpkin
16 gm. grapefruit seed extract
4-6 oz. pumpkin pie fragrance oil


Disolve lye in water and set aside to cool(be sure to stir well - it's a dense solution). Warm the coconut, olive and palm oils and shea butter until melted. When both liquids have cooled to about 100 degrees carefully combine together. Add GSE and stir to light trace. Add the canned pumpkin and fragrance oil. Pour into a mold and allow to cure for 6 weeks.

Due to the addition of extra moisture it traces really fast. The final soap is closer in color to butternut squash than pumpkin. The shea butter makes it a very creamy soap.
